The Braided World is back

braidedworld

I’m excited to announce the re-issue of my John W. Campbell Award finalist, The Braided World. If alien contact and cultures are your cup of tea, I think you will enjoy this story of xenophobia, cultural shock, and forbidden love.

The most troubling aliens are the ones that appear to be human. Meet the young, untested captain of the expedition, Anton Prados.

And meet the Dassa . . .

Maximum Ice is back

In this lovely re-issue, my story of an altered earth, and a cold welcome to the return of the generation ship Star Road. Available in eBook.

Nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award.

maximumice for webZoya Kundara has lived on the space vessel Star Road for 250 years. As Ship Mother, she is awakened from Deep Sleep in times of crisis, providing counsel to generations of its Romany crew. Now the ship has returned home, only to discover an Earth blanketed in a pearl-white mantle called Ice–a grand and mysterious ecology of information-bearing crystals.

To find a home for her crew, Zoya must approach the denizens of this  new Earth: The Ice Nuns, who seek sole control of the physics-defying crystals; people huddled like moles in underground techno-warrens; and the snow witches, both mad and prophetic . . . and one in particular, who will defend the kingdom of Ice with power and immortal cunning.
